The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says Randal Mitchell, a 39-year-old Northfield man, suffered “multiple blunt force injuries” after a a tree fell on him around 2:45 p.m. Saturday. Randal did not want the tree to hit a nearby barn so he attached a safety cable. The tree did not follow the path of the cable, but went the wrong way and pinned him underneath the tree. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
